dont bother if you live where it gets really cold in the winter, ive heard stories of the lines freezing up cus some water gets in then the tubes crack and leak and the bags do the same.

i saw a thing on tv that certain airbag setups can be as effective in ride quality as high quality coilovers and better. and plus you can still drop it on the streets really low n stuff

My suggestion is, unless you're car is a show car that needs to be lifted to get from show to show or on and off trailers, then it's not worth it to get an air ride. I have an air ride system sitting at home waiting for install, and my only reason is that my car is 100% show car that needs to be raised when going from point a to b. The ride quality of air suspension is not great at all. The ones that people talk about being so wonderfull and all, cost about a few grand. The ones such as the setup on the subarus and such are all computer controlled for weight and speed adjustment.

Just my $0.02
